January 2022 Caring for Carolinas Community Service Hero
SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – “Well hi, Jack Roper here. We are in Una, Spartanburg County, at Kingdom New Life Church, and we will be entering the sanctuary to present our January award to a very kind lady, Dr. Candace Brewer,” Caring for the Carolinas Host Jack Roper mentioned.
“She is the founder of POST,” said Cathaye Jones, bishop of Kingdom New Life Church. “POST stands for ‘Protect Our Stolen Treasures’.”
“When she learns that someone… has lost a loved one to a senseless homicide. She is the one who will come to provide this support in action. He is a person who has a heart and a passion for others,” said POST chaplain Terrell Jones.
“She’s very inspiring to me, not just me, but the Spartanburg community and everywhere,” said POST community activist Chance Lebron.
“We advocate around the world against gun violence, for police accountability and against senseless violence. And that includes domestic violence. I started my organization over 5 years ago because I lost 12 family members to gun violence and one to police violence. That’s why we decided we had to form POST in the state of South Carolina,” said Dr. Candace Brewer.
“She is one of those who stand up and support the family, support even law enforcement to do their job. The governor knows her by name,” Jones said.
“We feed the homeless, we house survivors of domestic violence and we are just there for the community on a day-to-day basis. We never take a break,” Brewer said.
“And we thank Bath Fitter, Unclaimed Furniture, Ingles and Hardees. So for the month of January, our winner, our community hero is DR. Candace Brewer. Let’s give him a good hand,” Roper said.
